Compendium on Gender Statistics in Pakistan

As an indispensable prelude to this end, the “Compendium on Gender Statistics 2004” presents gender disaggregated data on population, education, health, family planning, employment and public representation. Besides, international comparison of some important gender sensitive indicators has also been included to provide for collective self-reflection.
